The feedback generated over the next several weeks will help drive economic policy decisions which will have a direct impact on the bottom line of the Maine Economy. “Businesses are being given a unique opportunity to influence Maine’s future business climate and their very own profitability,” said DECD Commissioner, George Gervais.
The online survey, consisting of approximately 40 questions, asks businesses to rate everyday challenges from attracting and retaining employees to overall infrastructure needs. The questionnaire also digs deeper into specific policy areas such as workforce development, regulation, access to capital and incentives, workers compensation and marketing. Individual responses to the survey will be confidential and included in an overall summary. Maine Businesses, our front line job creators, are being given a terrific opportunity to tell state leaders what needs to be done.
